VIEW POLICY

This pretty, small corkscrew Vallisneria is labeled by several water plant nurseries as 'Vallisneria Torta'. It is probably Vallisneria asiatica var. biwaensis, but as long as its identity is unclear, we offer the plant as Vallisneria Torta. According to descriptions by the nurseries, it is the smallest Vallisneria, reaching a height of just 20 cm. The leaves are light green, somewhat transparent, and spirally twisted.

As well as most other Vallisneria, Vallisneria Torta has no special demands. Moderate light intensity is sufficient. The plant propagates itself by runners. If it spreads too much, newly appearing runners can be removed.

Vallisneria sp. "Torta" looks best as a group in the midground or foreground and can also be used for nano aquariums. With its spiral, light green leaves it provides an interesting accent.

  • Sold as Bare-root Plants, Bunched plants, or Potted plants
  • Bare-root plants | approx. 2-3 loose, bare-root plants
  • Bunched plants | approx. 2-3 rooted plants with foam, and lead weight

  • Small corkscrew Vallisneria

          WHAT WE CAN'T GUARANTEE

          Even though our plants are very clean, but we can't guarantee they will be 100% pest-free because we cannot be responsible for your aquarium. Please use it at your own risk. We recommended all customers rinse the plants with clean water and quarantine them before use.

          However, plants in tissue culture will be 100% free from pests, algae and never have been contacting with any aquarium.

          1. Due to the nature of the product. We don't guarantee our plants will be pests free. ( snails, algae, hitchhikers )
          2. We don't guarantee our plants will be free of pesticides. We use homemade, organic pesticides in our greenhouse to control pests. We do not use pesticides that contain copper. Copper is toxic to invertebrates such as aquatic snails, crabs, shrimps, etc
          3. We don't guarantee your aquarium success or are responsible for your aquarium inhabitant including but not limited to fish, shrimp, snail, turtle, etc. So please quarantine all plants when use!

          I really love this plant!! I got the buy 2 get 1 free, but each plant was actually several bound together. All plants were healthy with solid leaves and white crisp roots. All shipped well. Not a single piece of the three groups melted and all have grown well. I recommend this plant AND this seller.

          So delicate

          I ordered torta for my smaller, low tech betta tanks. I have never used Val before, but it adds something so delicate and graceful to the look of the tank. My pretty boi enjoys it too!

          I received wonderful, healthy plants from APF.
